“High Seas” is the Netflix summer binge we’ve been waiting for!

Confession: High Seas first showed up on my recommended Netflix queue and I was drawn in by the glitzy, glamourous, Titanic meets an Agatha Christie novel aesthetic. I am a sucker for Titanic. I watch at least part of it every time I stumble across it on TV. So the lavish art deco ship, the beautiful historical costuming, and theContinue reading ““High Seas” is the Netflix summer binge we’ve been waiting for!”

Four things for the start of May

For the love of April…please stop raining. We’ve had April winter storms, April showers, and April snow days.

Five things for the start of April

April has traditionally been the start of one of my antsy times of the year. The snow is melted and it looks/feels like it wants to be spring. But the weather continues to crazily fluctuate, sometimes giving you sixty degrees while other times plummeting back into the thirties.

Just a bunch of rock climbing documentaries that will make you want to adventure!

One of, I think, the greatest features of Netflix is the recommendations they make about what you should watch based off another title you’ve watched. Admittedly, sometimes these titles have very little to do with what you might actually be in the mood to view, but other times, these suggestions can lead you down aContinue reading “Just a bunch of rock climbing documentaries that will make you want to adventure!”

Netflix’s new dating show is really cringy, but then again, so is dating!

As yet another snow storm pounded the upper Midwest, I once again turned to my Netflix account for some cabin fever relief. At this point in our record breaking winter, I’ve been through most of the trendy, buzz worthy, series and movies, so when the Netflix Original dating series Dating Around popped up, it lookedContinue reading “Netflix’s new dating show is really cringy, but then again, so is dating!”

How do we know we’re “in love,” and some thoughts on this season of The Bachelor

Happy Valentine’s Day ink.! I try to keep my reality TV observations to one post a season. Some of you are here for The Bachelor/ette tea to be spilled, and as my bracket busting, season watch party lady gang will attest to, I always have plenty of thoughts about what’s going down. However, many of you areContinue reading “How do we know we’re “in love,” and some thoughts on this season of The Bachelor”

In late spring 2017, hundreds of wealthy, millennial influencers boarded flights to the Bahamas for what was supposed to be the next up and coming music festival. Promised private villas, VIP meet and greets, five start cuisine, and breath-taking sunsets on the beach, travelers paid tens of thousands of dollars for tickets to Fyre Festival, aContinue reading “Stop, drop, and roll footage!
